Common Toad (Bufo bufo)
We have several beautiful common toads, Bufo bufo. Although common toads are widespread throughout Britain, they are of the high conservation priority due to their unfortunate decline in the UK. They are brown in colour and have very textured warty looking skin.
Our toads hatched in 2021 and were reared by us, originating from toadspawn rescued from a fish pond which was then hatched and reared in a captive environment.
They live in a mixed species outdoor enclosure, meaning they have access to natural British weather which is perfect for them to thrive. They have a varied diet of invertebrates. Our toads are carefully handled and often hand fed to ensure they are comfortable with human interaction.
